    • Overview

      This class will explore the relationship of trust that exist between patients and the pharmacists who provide pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical care services for the benefit of patients.The class will consider the importance of the covenantal relationship in which society grants a virtual monopoly to pharmacists over medication distribution, and in exchange pharmacists commit to protecting the public from unsafe medication use. Using the example of extemporaneous compounding, the class concludes that professionalism necessitates the taking of measured and reasonable risks to provide patients with useful and appropriate drug therapy.

      This monograph can be taken as a standalone 1 credit hour home study in law (ACPE accredited) but is also a component of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist curriculum. To qualify as a PRS, one must enroll in each of the five (5) live PRS pharmacy law webinars given throughout the year and successfully complete twenty-six (26) one-credit monographs. Once all requirements have been completed, the participant must pass a final comprehensive exam (70% or higher) and pay $199 for the recording and issuing of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist Certificate.
